2023 Accredited Practice of the Year Winners

Eligibility

  • Practices are eligible to be nominated if they are AAHA-accredited or AAHA-accredited referral practices that have been in business at least two years prior to application and have been reaccredited during the timeframe of April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024.
  • A practice must have completed at least two evaluation cycles. This means newly accredited practices (with only an initial evaluation completed) are not eligible until they follow their second evaluation with AAHA.
  • Entire Referral practices are not eligible for APOY; rather, the individual specialties are eligible to apply.
